It’s that time of year again! Join us on our 9th annual Cycle to the Source Watershed Tour.

Who: You! Along with Cambridge Water Department staff and guides from Urban AdvenTours. This event is free and open to the public, but for safety reasons is for adults only.

What: Cycle to the Source is a 32-mile bike tour of the Cambridge Watershed. It is a chance to explore where your water comes from, how it is collected, and what steps are taken to ensure the city has clean drinking water. It will include stops at the upper reservoirs, dams, gatehouses, and the CWD field office.

When: Saturday, October 15, 2022 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Rain date is Sunday, October 16th.

Where: The ride starts and ends at the Walter J. Sullivan Purification Facility at 250 Fresh Pond Parkway, and explores the Cambridge watershed, which includes the lands and reservoirs in Lincoln, Lexington, Weston, and Waltham.

How: Register here if you’d like to participate! All you need is a working bike, helmet, lunch, and water. If you would like to join but need a bike, Urban AdvenTours rents hybrid and road bikes that are suitable for the event. Visit their website for more information.
